SwingX 1.0 in Sight
Just a quick update about SwingX. We are making the final dispositions of what's in and what's out for the 1.0 release. If you have any comments regarding the decision to include or remove something from the 1.0 target list, please see my thread in the SwingLabs Forums.
For those of you who are unaware, SwingX 1.0 is going to be the last major release for Java 1.5. After it's release, we are going to be targeting a Java 6 minimum. This allows us to reduce some outside dependencies (like the SwingWorker backport) and concentrate on working with Mustang sorting/filtering. SwingX sorting/filtering has been at a stand-still for a long time because we wanted to bring ourselves in line with what core Java is doing. This will hopefully give us a chance to tackle some of the longstanding sorting/filtering issues in a core compatible way.
